Plan for Blackout Warnings Examined

Californians could soon wake up to hear a weather report, a pollen count and an electricity


State power officials are thinking about giving people advance notice of blackouts.

Operators of the state´s power
grid are due to release a report today on how a plan would work.

Unlike with rolling blackouts, people and businesses would be able to make plans.
But there´s also concern it might lead to more crime if crooks knew in advance which neighborhoods would be dark.
